Medical Oxygen Supply in Sydney
Medical oxygen is a high-grade oxidising gas made of 100% oxygen. It is odourless, colourless and tasteless, and commonly stored as either compressed gas or liquid.
While it is known for saving lives, it is important to follow the gas storage rules to ensure it does not become dangerous. We offer an easy-to-download Gas storage checklist.
What is Medical oxygen commonly used for?
Medical Oxygen (gaseous) is used whenever you are not getting enough oxygen into your blood. This situation is called hypoxia. You can suffer from hypoxia if you have breathing difficulties due to respiratory disease, chest wounds, or rib fractures. Hypoxia is also seen if you are in shock, bleeding badly, have a heart attack, have other heart problems, or have carbon monoxide poisoning.
Since a high level of oxygen saturation is required for cell metabolism, medical oxygen is used in these situations to ensure patients are getting the correct amount of oxygen to survive.
It works by helping you to breathe more easily via either a face mask, nasal cannula, and in some situations hyperbaric chambers. Oxygen is also used as a diluent for other gases used during anesthesia.

Medical oxygen is a highly regulated medical gas and must be used by approved and qualified healthcare professionals or under doctor prescription.

Liquid oxygen may also give you cold burns and/or destroy tissues so it’s important it is handled carefully by professionals.
